ECS showed off a render picture of the X79R-AX Stealth, a concept of an Intel X79 powered motherboard inspired by the ASUS Sabertooth. Most of the motherboard is covered by a shroud to protect delicate components and act as an umbrella to cooling systems. Based on ECS' wording, it's still unknown if this product will make it to the retail market.
We'd like to share the following concept motherboard: The ECS X79R-AX Stealth. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing but functional, as well. The motherboard housing or shroud protects against damage to the delicate components and parts while acting as an umbrella to cooling systems (heatsinks and heatpipes). Worried about overheating? The exhaust vents allow air to escape and store unit fans, if necessary.
What do you think? Would you buy one? Maybe one will be sneaking up at an e-tailer near you.
